Here is some information regarding the Radeao RX Vega 64 and Radeao RX Vega 56. These Vega64 cards will be priced at $599 and $699 respectively as part of Radeon Packs, and the air-cooled version will be $499 outside of this promotion.

The company will also offer a Radeon RX Vega 64 limited edition with a brushed aluminum shell, pricing for which is yet to be declared.

The company also unveiled a new initiative called "Radeon Packs", which will allow potential customers to get a decent discount if they were to fully upgrade their systems.

64 the computer unit CU and 4096 stream processors; core frequency 1247 MHz with Boost mode to 1546 MHz; 8 GB HBM2-memory with a capacity of 484 GB/s; air-cooled; TDP - 295 W; price - $499.

We're all waiting on some solid details of AMD's new RX Vega video card, and while we've been promised one "soon", all we have to go on in the meantime are these pics from a recent event in the US. We can use the 8GB of advanced HBM2 memory for storage goal along with the 484GBps of bandwidth. The latter delivers up to 12.3 TFLOPS of peak single precision compute for the most demanding media and entertainment, and design and manufacturing workloads. AMD increased the base clock to 1,406MHz and boost clock to 1,677MHz. As you can see in the pictures, the card features a similar display output configuration to current Polaris-based cards (3 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI), with a vented case bracket that has perforations of varying sizes.

Images of the AMD Radeon RX Vega leaked out just a few days ago and sure enough the rumors were true.

During the presentation of the Radeon RX Vega journalists asked sarcastically, as AMD refers to the fact that after 14 months after the release of the GeForce GTX 1080 she managed only to catch up with this GPU, which, moreover, is not even the flagship accelerator. The GTX 1080 is clocked at 1,607 MHz and boosted up to 1,733 MHz.

The packs will give gamers a $200 discount on a monitor, $100 discount on the CPU and mobo combo and two free games (Wolfenstein 2: The New Colussus and Prey). It was answered, that, say, AMD now have zero share in the upper market segment, and now the company will have something to offer 95% of enthusiastic gamers.

These discounts will be in effect immediately and simultaneously, that is, when adding a specified set of equipment to cart online store. GeForce GTX 1080 contains the 78 fps on the top, and the minimum frame rate is about 45 fps.
